Pope Francis: The Name of God is Mercy, A conversation with Andrea Tornielli 99 pages

This short little book is an excellent read for Lent.  Pope Francis has declared this year the Jubilee Year of Mercy and this book is a conversation with Vatican reporter Andrea Tornielli about what mercy means, to Pope Francis, to the Church and to each of us.  It is an easy read, and should be very meaningful, not just for all Catholics, but to anyone interested in God's mercy.  There is nothing we can do, nothing at all, that as long as we are truly repentant, God will not forgive.  So, if you have been away from the Church, if you have not been to confession for years, run, do not walk, and ask for forgiveness.  God forgives, He is merciful.
